A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. I saw similar recipes but nothing quite the same as this one. The ingredients listed optional were not part of this recipe but seen in others. Note: Not all soy sauce brands are equal. Some are saltier than others. Click here: to be added to The Girlfriend Life Newsletter for encouragement, recipes and ideas! Where this recipe came from.

I've seen similar recipes for crock-pot chicken teriyaki for the past few months, decided to try this one. I tried three different batches, in short, everything listed as (Optional) you can leave out without much impact on the flavor. You can definitely leave out the soy sauce!! The optional 1/2 cup of soy sauce is way too much for this recipe, even 1/4 cup of soy sauce was going overboard! Sesame oil really isn't needed. Adding light sesame seeds for appearance and texture will be ok.

This was a HUGE disappointment. Found the recipe on Pinterest with a very appetizing picture included. The picture had nothing to do with the actual recipe, which I doubled because I was so excited about it. It was like a soup with mushy pieces of chicken swimming in it. I deleted the pin and I do not recommend this recipe.

Tried this tonight. Very watery and needed to be thickened. I added 1/4 cup soy and some sesame seeds. Didn't taste bad, but not sure I will be making it again.
